East Loop 820 and Hwy 121 Expansion

30 September 2017 - 06:56 PM

Here is the new plan for the East Loop 820 and Hwy 121 Expansion.

From Randol Mill north to Trinity Blvd, 820 will add three free lanes in each direction (five total, from two currently).

From Trinity north to the 820/183/121 split, it will add one free lane and one toll lane in each direction.

The last mile or so of Hwy 121 before it merges with 820 will also get a toll lane in each direction.

There will be a open house this Thursday. http://www.txdot.gov...rth/100517.html

I have not ridden Vonlane, but I know people who travel between Dallas and Houston for business and prefer Vonlane to flying or driving.
